slides: Family Matters: Top 10 Toys That Don’t Cost a Penny

Friday, November 23, 2012

 

Last year around this time, I was inspired by a post by Geek Dad on Wired on his picks for the 5 best toys of all time. He listed items—things many of us may overlook as toys—that he feels no kid should be without. “All five should fit easily within any budget, and are appropriate for a wide age range so you get the most play out of each one.”

We also love gadgets and gizmos but realize kids do not need all the bells and whistles in order to play and have fun. I've added 5 more items to the list--making it the Top 10 Toys for Kids. No batteries needed for the toys listed, just some free time and a little bit of imagination. Assembly optional, not required.
